Step 1: Starting It Out
To start, fold the top right corner of an 8.5" x 11" piece of paper down so it forms half of a square. After that, cut off the single layered piece at the bottom. Then unfold the pice of paper so you have a square.
Step 2: Fold It Again
Next fold the paper again across the line you made already and unfold it again. After that fold it in half straight instead of diagonal so it forms a rectangle.
Step 3: Fold the Corners In
Then you need to take the top two corners and fold then in so you get a triangle.
Step 4: Fold Up the Bottom Corners
Next you fold up the bottom two corners of the triangle so you get a diamond like shape. Then you take the outer two corners of the diamond and fold them in to the center line.
Step 5: Finishing It Up
The last step it to fold down the two little tabs at the top on both sides and fold then down in to the tabs below them.
Step 6: Finished!
Now all you have to do is blow into the small hole at the end of the balloon and it will inflate. If you want to you can fill them up with water and use them as water balloons but they will not be reuse able, or you could just play catch with them or something like that.
